1.    The bottom square of your pyramid must be 10 inches on each side.


2.    The side triangles must be 10”x10”x10” (equilateral triangle).


3.    Answer this math question:  What is the height of your pyramid?


4.    The base of your pyramid (what your pyramid is placed on) must be 12”x12”.


5.    This is your science question:  What weather events caused the ancient pyramids to look like they do today?


6.    This is your technology question:  How did the ancient Egyptians move huge blocks to the top of the pyramid?


7.    Your pyramid may be constructed of any materials.  (It is not necessary to spend any money, but you may choose to do so.)


8.    9.  10.  Write a paragraph answering these three questions.


     1.  Who helped you build this homework project?  What did they do?  How did you help each other?  What materials did you use?


     2.  What was difficult about this project?  What was easy?  What was fun?


      3.  Did you choose to make you pyramid in the form of Ancient Egyptian completion or how they look today?  Why? 



  •   Place your pyramid in any space on the 12”x12” base in case you wish to add landscaping.
